Tri Pointe Homes at Landsdale—Welcome Home

When a community is established, when the trees are mature and all the neighborhood is full of life and families, it’s a wonderful thing. The breeze carries with it a sense of home beyond home. The greenery is lush, the amenities are all tried and true, and the smiles are those of people who have not just bought a house, but have chosen a place to live. These communities are golden.

But even gold can be polished to an even greater shine, when brand-new homes are added that both stand out and blend into an already thriving community. That final bit of spice that brings the whole flavor of the neighborhood together. Tri Pointe Homes is proud to bring an evolution in style, tucked into the classic scenic location of Landsdale—Frederick’s fastest-selling community.

Our Landsdale homes are like nothing you’ve seen before. Two new single-family home styles—merging a West Coast aesthetic with East Coast needs—are a new design in comfort that still feels familiar. They are an evolution, yet join seamlessly into the charming Frederick County countryside.

Landsdale is inspired by you

Every Tri Pointe Homes home gives you all the space and places your family needs and wants, and our Landsdale homes are no exception. They are, however, exceptional. Inspired by feedback from our customers, we’ve designed 48 homesites that really do save the best for last (and for you)!

From a spacious kitchen ready for you to cook up all sorts of delicious delights to the most relaxing bedrooms ready to whisk you all off to dreamland, our homes offer an abundance of room, inside and out, for every aspect of your life—including entertaining! And all surrounded by Landsdale’s multitude of open spaces painting your life with nature, serenity, and adventure.

Oh, the outdoor adventures you’ll have. Landsdale’s amenities are beyond compare, and center around our 6,000 sq. ft. Craftsman-style clubhouse that is a hub of community activity with its spacious entertaining areas. Our resort-style, 8-lane Olympic-sized pool and a zero-entry tot pool provide great places for the whole family to cool off in the summer heat.

When you need to be active outside the water, you’ll enjoy our tennis and sports courts, playgrounds and tot lots, and hiking/biking trails and open spaces. Plus, for even more community connections, we have an outdoor amphitheater. Nothing beats attending an outdoor performance with your friends and neighbors.

Frederick County education gets an A+

The tot pool and playgrounds aren’t the only reason parents will love Landsdale; they’ll also adore the award-winning Frederick County schools. GreatSchools has ranked 67% of Frederick schools as ‘above average’—over twice the state average! In fact, Maryland’s school achievement tool ranked Linganore High School in the 94th percentile with a perfect 5-star rating.

Because every member of the family is important in Landsdale, there are plans for a future elementary school right in the middle of our community. Frederick schools provide the best learning environments for our children, and Landsdale wants to make sure those opportunities are close to home.

Convenient to everything

Living in Landsdale also puts everything else you could desire close to home. With quick access to I-70, I-270, and MD-355, Landsdale puts everything in Urbana, Historic Downtown Frederick, Montgomery County, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. within easy reach—including employers like Fort Detrick, AstraZeneca, other major science and technology companies.

But you’re also near some of the best shopping, dining, and entertainment in the area. Clarksburg Premium Outlets—a shopper’s haven—is only about 12 miles away. Travel just 10 miles, and you’ll be living it up in Old Town Frederick: enjoying award-winning (and world-renowned) dining and an eclectic mix of unique shopping venues. Old Town Frederick is also a destination for live and local art, music, and theater.

And let’s not forget about all the scenic beauty that you can see from your back porch. Sugarloaf Mountain rises in the distance, just 11 miles away. Monocacy Battlefield is just up the road, and an afternoon outing can take your family right to the banks of the Potomac River for some riparian entertainment. So many adventures!

Choosing a Home Builder

Thanks to low interest rates and reduced spending due to stay at home orders, homes are selling extremely fast throughout much of the country. In addition to families looking to upgrade to a larger living space, several Millennials and first-time buyers are actively looking to purchase their first home. According to Statista, 58.1% of Millennials are expected to own a home by 2025. Used home inventory is at an all-time low. Instead of waiting months for the right used home to hit the market, prospective buyers could benefit from speaking with an experienced home builder. Buying a new construction home allows buyers to eliminate many of the maintenance and repair costs associated with older homes and appliances. It also allows buyers to personalize their home to their own unique style and needs. While working with a home builder provides numerous benefits, it’s important to take your time when selecting a builder. Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments most people make. Locating the right builder ensures a smooth and successful home building process. Create a Concept Plan Before contacting a builder, it’s important to think about what you want and need in a home. Make sure to consider any future plans and goals in addition to the immediate needs of your family. An experienced home builder can show you different layouts and plans. They work with you to develop a design that meets both your functional and aesthetic needs. Make a List of Your Specifications Before speaking with a builder, make a list of the appliances, finishes, fixtures, and accessories you would like included with your home. Make sure to work with a builder that offers a variety of options. It’s also important to ask what’s included for the price. Consider The Floor Plans Offered By The Home Builder Be sure to consider all the options - builders offer a wide variety of options for buyers to personalize their homes and make it their own. Floor Plans for homes are often pre-determined – as they have been designed over many years of people living in them and providing feedback – but this means that purchasers have excellent and proven options to choose from. Research Your Home Builder Conduct thorough research on the builders, and if they have any experience working in the specific area where you are interested in living – be sure to check out their history, on-line reviews, etc. Additionally, sales representatives are very knowledgeable and can provide great insights. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Consider Home Builder Warranty Programs Homebuyers looking to purchase a new construction home should consider a home builder’s warranty. Unlike a home warranty, which covers mostly appliances, a home builder’s warranty covers structural elements, materials, and workmanship. Although the features and elements covered vary from one warranty to the next, this important warranty provides new homeowners with peace of mind and protection if something goes wrong with the structural elements of the home. New Construction Homes in Frederick County, MD Landsdale features new homes designed and built by the area’s top builders. At Landsdale, homebuyers can choose from multiple home styles and numerous features. Our builders work directly with the buyer to create the home of their dreams. Please contact us to learn more.

Establishing Your Home Work Space

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have had to make the switch to working from home. Although this provides a convenient option, it creates challenges for individuals and families as well. These challenges only increase when students return to school. With students’ distance learning and parents working from home, it becomes almost impossible to find the separation between the home and office. Although it’s important to stay productive at both work and school, it’s equally important to ensure you have enough space to relax and connect as a family. Creating Separation Between Work and Home Many parents find it difficult to juggle their professional and parenting roles when working from home. Children and parents may have multiple video calls running at the same time, creating background noise and distractions. This can create tension as family members attempt to talk over each other. For the working parent, background noise can impact job performance and make them appear unprofessional. Whether students are distance learning or have returned to school, it’s crucial that everyone has their own work space. Creating separate work spaces for each person in the household helps create a separation between home and office. This mental separation allows students and remote workers to focus on their work, making them much more productive. Creating a Work Space for Adults When creating a work space for adults, it’s important to choose a space that’s separate from the areas of the home commonly used to relax and unwind. The work space should remain as quiet as possible and have plenty of natural light. Although parents should be able to keep tabs on their children, it’s important to keep the work space as private as possible. Setting up a silent communication system can help parents avoid unexpected interruptions. For example, parents can set-up a system where a closed door means to come back later. Of course, parents should always make an exception for emergencies. Setting Up a Work Space for Students Many of the same ideas apply when setting up a work space for children. If your child doesn’t have a desk, now is the time to invest in one. Make sure they have access to everything they need to complete their work at home. Set-up their work space away from where they rest or play. The goal is to create a space where students can be just as productive as they would in the classroom. This is important even after students return to school. Students tend to complete homework more efficiently if they have their own work space. Ensuring Enough Space for Your Family Over the past eight months, many people have found their current home simply cannot accommodate the changing needs of their family. As a result, many individuals and families are purchasing larger homes. Homebuilders are taking the changing needs of individuals and families into consideration when building new homes. Many new homes, like those at Landsdale Frederick, offer enough space to give everyone a comfortable, quiet, and relatively private work space. Upgrading to a larger home allows parents and students to each have their own work space while maintaining space for family members to connect, relax, and unwind. Frederick’s fastest selling new home community, Landsdale offers thoughtfully designed homes built by the area’s top home builders.

Home Buying Has Changed During the Pandemic

Home Buying Has Changed During the Pandemic

When it comes to real estate, potential homebuyers are starting to look for different features and amenities when buying a home. As Frederick County’s fastest-selling new home community, Landsdale has seen a lot of homebuyers in the past few months. The following details some of the biggest changes we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic. Homebuyers Leaving Densely Populated Areas Social distancing and state mandates have left many of us wanting to move out of densely populated areas in favor of suburban communities with amenities. These new home communities like Landsdale Frederick, offer a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life. Everything you need is located close to home, eliminating the need to venture out into busy urban areas. People Thinking More About How They Want to Live Over the past few months, we’ve all had a lot of time to think. For many, this has led to a realization of the importance of living life to its fullest. People everywhere are starting to consider moving to a more functional space that offers an escape from the COVID experience. New home communities like Landsdale, offer large homes, gorgeous views, and home designs that fit what families actually want and need. Families Looking at Larger Homes Being confined inside forces you to take a closer look at your living space. During quarantine, families all over the United States have realized that their current home doesn’t fit their family’s needs 100% of the time. Maybe it’s missing a home office, room for the kids to work independently, or space for the kids to play. Perhaps you’re considering upgrading your appliances, the technology in your home, or its floor plan. Whatever the case, families everywhere are starting to look at larger homes with more features and amenities. Less Focus on Commute In the past, potential homebuyers tended to look for new home communities located close to work. This makes sense when you consider the amount of time most people spend commuting to and from the office. However, this has changed in recent months. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, most people have switched to working remotely, making it possible for them to complete tasks and work from any location in the world. Since March, many organizations have realized the cost saving benefits of having employees work from home. In fact, many businesses have decided to keep staff working remotely, opening up new possibilities for those looking to purchase a home. Final Thoughts The current health crises has changed the criteria homebuyers look for when buying a home. Although the pandemic won’t last forever, these changes will likely stick around. If you’re considering moving, we strongly recommend looking for a new home community that offers everything you want and need. Landsdale features a large selection of new homes built by the area’s top builders. Our community offers residents fantastic views, gorgeous homes, and a variety of amenities.

New Home Buying Checklist

Ryan Homes in Frederick MD
Ryan Homes in Frederick MD
Most Americans dream of owning a home. In addition to the pride and sense of accomplishment that comes with home ownership, homeowners pay less tax and save money over renting. Home prices tend to rise over time, making home purchase one of the best investments you can make. Despite the numerous benefits of homeownership, many people still worry about the home buying process. This makes sense when you consider the fact that buying a home is one of the largest purchases you can make. It’s important to learn all you can about the home buying process before taking this important step. 
  • Clean Up Your Credit
If you haven’t already, now is the time to check your credit score. This is the number that mortgage lenders look at when determining your rate. A higher score means a lower mortgage rate. Although it isn’t necessary, it’s a good idea to resolve any issues on your credit report before shopping for a home.
  • Determine How Much Home You Can Afford
Figuring out your budget before shopping for a home can save you a lot of heartache later. In order to determine your budget you need to compare the amount of money your household makes each month after taxes to your average monthly expenses and debt. Keep in mind that the more money you put down on your new home, the smaller your mortgage payment will be.
  • Search for a Mortgage Lender
The mortgage process is often one of the most stressful parts of buying a new home. It’s not uncommon for prospective buyers to spend months on end trying to find the right lender. After locating a mortgage lender, prospective buyers need to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Fortunately, there is a way to streamline the process. Most home builders have their own mortgage company, allowing you to keep everything in one place. This makes financing easy and home builders often offer incentives to buyers that finance with them.   
  • Determine Your Needs
Everyone has different needs when it comes to buying a home. While some people focus on the kitchen and amenities, it’s important to distinguish what’s really important. Consider making a list of both your wants and needs. This can help you determine which elements are negotiable.  
  • Research Local Neighborhoods
Location makes a big difference when buying a home. Before viewing any homes, make sure you research the area and the school districts. Even if you don’t plan on having children, homes located close to good schools tend to have a higher resale value. In addition to good schools, make sure you research the local shopping centers, restaurants, grocery stores, and entertainment. 
  • Start Touring Homes
Once you’ve determined the type of home you’d like to purchase, it’s time to start visiting them in-person. Although your real estate agent will help you through much of the process, it’s important to have some questions prepared before touring any homes. You’ll want to gather as much information about the home as possible including the year it was built, materials used, previous owners (if any), and renovations.  New Homes in Frederick County Located close to sought-after schools, shopping, dining, arts, entertainment, and recreation, Landsdale offers a wide range of home styles from five of the area’s most talented and experienced builders. Please contact us to schedule a tour and learn about our builder’s financing options. We look forward to hearing from you!
